Pair of RCA BK-11a’s

Recently re-ribonned and serviced. Originally bought from a studio in St Louis and were fabled to be from the Caesars Palace live rig in Las Vegas for Frank Sinatra’s residency. 

Comes as a set of two (were stereo matched).. First set up with new silks, ribbons and full work over by Stephen Sank at Cloud Microphones (Son of the original designer of the BK-11). Recent service done by Mark Chierago at Open Plan Microphones in Melbourne. Have all invoices and email correspondence to verify.

The BK-11 was the microphone that was released to take over from the RCA 44 but  was short lived in the spotlight, being outdone by the Neumann U47.

In excellent condition comes with Tuff Nut case, email for more photos.
